Infloran, probiotics helping premature and sick newborns

Miracle Babies Foundation is proud to announce its newest Corporate Partner, Infloran.

Infloran is a probiotic safe for premature and sick newborns. Formulated with Bifidobacterium Bifidum NCDO 2203 and Lactobacillus acidophilus NCDO 1748, Infloran helps to:

  • Support gastrointestinal immune function
  • Help maintain beneficial intestinal flora including during antibiotic use
  • Reduce and relieve diarrhoea
  • Promote healthy digestion

Premature babies are at increased risk of developing conditions such as Necrotising Enterocolitis (NEC) affecting the bowel, have poorer immunity, and are exposed to various factors which can have an impact on their gut health. Many factors including the mode of birth, diet, environment, and antibiotic use will impact the gut microbiome and in turn development and health.

Infloran was first introduced to the Nepean Hospital in 2012 and today the routine practice of bacterial supplementation with this probiotic is found throughout Australian and New Zealand Neonatal Intensive Care Units and Special Care Nurseries (SCN).

Probiotics can be beneficial for babies premature due to compromised immunity and increased susceptibility to various conditions. Miracle Babies Foundation is proud to partner with Infloran which is used in NICUs and Special Care Nurseries across Australia and New Zealand. Further educating and empowering parents of premature and sick newborns is vitally important to Miracle Babies, and it is a privilege to partner with Infloran as we work together on this shared vision.” – Kylie Pussell, CEO and CoFounder, Miracle Babies Foundation

  • NurtureLine (24-hour family support line)
  • NurtureTime (in-hospital peer support)
  • NurtureGroup (after discharge play and support groups)

Thank you Infloran for your support.
